Body Sculpting in Irvine
Irvine body sculpting, performed by a board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Siamak Agha of The Aesthetic Center of Orange County, contours and refines your body’s shape, tone and symmetry. Body sculpting results are permanent and are positively enhanced when you continue a lifestyle of good diet and exercise.
Sometimes confused with fat reduction using procedures such as CoolSculpting ®, body sculpting is most often performed in Irvine by an experienced plastic surgeon using liposuction. Body sculpting may include fat reduction, smoothing and contouring of the abdomen, waist, buttocks, hips, thighs, arms and back. Other areas may also be improved through body sculpting, at the discretion of the board certified plastic surgeon.
All in all, body sculpting provides Irvine patients with a more attractive, contoured and smooth physique.
Will I qualify for body sculpting in Irvine?
To find out if you are a good candidate for Irvine body sculpting, first meet with Dr. Siamak Agha of The Aesthetic Center of Orange County. Dr. Agha is a board certified plastic surgeon. He will evaluate your body and health history to determine if you can expect good results from body sculpting using liposuction in Irvine. At the end of this consultation, you may schedule your body sculpting surgery.
Optimum candidates for Irvine body sculpting include non-smokers or those willing to quit for a period of time both before and after the body sculpting procedure. Smoking inhibits healing and creates greater risk during surgery. So, this is an important consideration for body sculpting.
Liposuction works best when skin still has good elasticity. Dr. Agha will look at your skin during the initial consultation to determine if it will react well to new contours being formed as part of body sculpting in Irvine. If your skin is not adequately elastic, a body lift or other procedure may work better for your goals.
Of course, patients desiring to undergo body sculpting will need to have good overall health with no medical conditions which can cause problems during surgery or recovery.
What can I expect in regard to body sculpting recovery?
After your Irvine body sculpting surgery at The Aesthetic Center of Orange County, your incisions will be bandaged and drains may be placed in the wounds. Such drains help remove excess fluid and reduce swelling. You will wear a compression garment in order to stabilize the wounds and keep that swelling to a minimum. On about the third day after body sculpting surgery, you will visit Dr. Agha’s office in Irvine for a post-surgical follow-up appointment.
After your follow-up session with the plastic surgeon, you will be able to take a shower. You will continue wearing your compression garment according to Dr. Agha’s instructions.
It may be about a week before you are able to return to work or a normal schedule around Irvine after body sculpting. Rest and recovery are important after the body sculpting procedure, to allow adequate healing and the best results from your surgery.
